Three Ways to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day in Milwaukee< Back to blog
Did you know that Saint Patrick was initially depicted as wearing blue, instead of the all-familiar green? However, over the years the color green became representative of the Irish as well as a part of their flag. Along with donning green, there are many ways to celebrate Irish culture. From dancing and food to pub crawls and parades, Milwaukee has so many fun activities to experience this Saint Patrick's Day.
Saint Patrick's Day Parade Downtown Milwaukee - March 11th
Put on by the Shamrock Club of Wisconsin and Westown Association, the Saint Patrick's Day parade will start on North Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and through downtown Milwaukee. Join in on this festive Milwaukee tradition and watch Irish dancers, pipe and drum corps, unique parade floats, and more. The parade is also a fantastic way to support local downtown businesses and have some fun, whether you're Irish or not.
Lucky Leprechaun 7K - March 11th
No need to be an avid runner, you can walk your way through the town of Wauwatosa for this Saint Patrick's Day celebration. The Lucky Leprechaun 7K supports the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (MACC) funding research and supporting children affected by cancer. You'll get an invigorating start to your Saint Patrick's Day by running (or walking) this 4.7-mile trail.
Saint Patrick's Day Pub Crawl - March 17th and 18th
These festive pub crawls will get you free cover to multiple bars, access to drink specials, live music, and the opportunity to meet Milwaukee locals. What's Saint Patrick's Day without some green beer? Several crawls are going on during Saint Patrick's Day weekend, so grab your friends and hit up the town.
